Offshore Angler Flathead Jigheads
Good purchase with one exception
I purchased these jigheads in 3 sizes - 1/4oz, 1/2oz & 3/4oz. I also purchased them in two colors - red & chartreuse. I use them for fishing in saltwater for Calico Bass & Sand Bass. I loose many of them in the rocks so I don't want to pay a lot for them and these are very well made for the price....BUT....I do have one problem with them. On one size and color - 1/2oz chartreuse - the paint comes off too easily. It appears to be a power coating that wasn't baked on. I don't except the paint to last forever since I loose many of them but I do expect the paint to last through shipping. If it wasn't for this they would get 5 stars.

Inexpensive jig heads
These are not the high priced premium heads we use at times. But with a small Gulp shrimp since they have only one small holding barb the bait gets less torn up. Also for some reason like with flounder this jig design seems to hook and hold just a little bit better. They do need sharpening out of the package but a small emory board in around 400 grit does a quick touch up and makes them sticky sharp.

Good Jig Head
These are good jig heads with good hooks at a reasonable price. I only use them for a weighted hook for throwing shrimp. I sometimes use them to tight line or below a popping cork when I get to do some inshore fishing. The paint finish holds up very well on them but the hook will get a little rusty if you dont wash them after a days use. I'm giving this product 4 stars because it is a salt water specific product and I experienced a little rusting. Over all they are great jig heads. Good quality for the price.

great Flounder head
Used this head with Gulp swimming mullet Carolina rigged with 1/4 to 1/2 oz. egg sinker and florocarbon leader. Was catching 5-10x as many flounder as others. Key was Chartruse head in 3/8 or 1/2 depending on strength of tide. Color of swimming mullet varried on water clarity. Also works great with new penny, nuclear chicken Gulp jerk shad. Flounder mainly 16- 21" but one 91/2 pounder!
